many farmers who have the lesson of
hay growing to learn.
, Do Not Exposa.
1 The first aim in the curing of hay
is to expose it as little as possible to
the 3un, for palatability decreases with
the increase of bleaching. It should
be protected as much as possible from
the dampness which takes from it
aroma and certain other properties.
The air and the wind are the agents
that will properly cure hay. retaining
the natural color and sweetness. If
it is over sun cured, it will not only
lose its palatability and many of its
leaves, but it loses more than a due
amount of weight. On the other hand,
if exposed to excessive rains alfatfa
soon becomes practically useless for
food Give the hay air and wind to
cure it properly, preserving the green
color, the weight, palatability, aroma
and nutrition to the highest degree.
Cure in Swath.
How many times we have seen on
the market a shipment of hay that is
dry and lifeless: that lias been
bleached out until it is little more
than wood, with aroma missing and
the nutrition lacking, making It a
ni09t unpalatable food. The best re-
sults can be obtained by curing hay
in the swath—just as it falls from tho
mower. This form of curing has many
strong and striking advantages. It is
not only labor saving, but It enables
the hay maker to do it much more
quickly and this in turn lessens tho
hazards from losses of exposure to
rain and from the over-maturing part
of the crop.

adoption of duties which will be pro-

averted only by Mr. Wilson applying
the party lash to the recalcitrant
